Originally thought to be Tesla, this is a portrait of someone obviously in Tesla's lab, but it's most likely not Tesla himself. Tesla always parted his hair in the middle.

Delphine Tesla's picture

This is a great photo, thank you for posting. Unfortunately this is not Nikola Tesla. His hair is always parted in the middle, and he never wears any type of jewelry, which includes the small chain you see on the photo. I keep seeing this photo, it has spread all over the Internet because it is a great shot, but it is not Tesla. Perhaps his assistant. DT

I tend to agree with this and I'm going to update the photo.
